The Fourth Sunday in Lent
March 31, 2019
"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

That Priceless Grace
Traditional Ghanaian Tune
arr. John Helgen

That priceless grace, that priceless grace, 
that priceless grace, which gave me life: 
Jesus' life is priceless grace. 
That priceless grace is life for me.

That priceless blood, that priceless blood, 
that priceless blood was shed for me: 
Jesus' blood is priceless grace. 
That priceless grace is life for me.

That painful death, that painful death, 
that painful death took sins away: 
Jesus' death is priceless grace. 
That priceless grace is life for me.

That precious word, that precious word, 
that precious word, which brought me light: 
Jesus' word is priceless grace. 
That priceless grace is life for me.
